Art discipline: 
Violinist Asia Jiménez Antón de Vez, from Barcelona, recently finished an
Artist Diploma at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London, with
renowned teachers David Takeno and Andras Keller. She previously studied
at the Royal College of Music in London with Leonid Kerbel and Daniel
Rowland, supported generously by the Albert Cooper Trust.
Asia started her musical career at the age of four at the Conservatori del
Liceu in Barcelona, she received an honours degree from this institution as
well as the Gold Medal Award as a student of Kai Gleusteen. Before moving
to London, she studied privately with Sergei Fatkulin in Madrid.
Asia has given recitals around Europe and Asia, and has been awarded
the opportunity to perform in halls such as the Teatro La Fenice in Venice,
the National Theatre in Shanghai, Wigmore Hall in London or Palau de
la Música in Barcelona. Her playing and musicality have been praised by
the audience, being the high level of expression the common point of her
listeners. She has played for Dutch radio NPO4, English BBC Radio and
Catalunya Música.
Important projects / Exhibitions: 
A keen chamber musician, she has regularly been invited to prestigious
festivals such as IMS Prussia Cove in the UK run by Steven Isserlis, or the
Ravel Festival in France, in the class of Philippe Graffin.
Asia had the pleasure of visiting violin legend Ivry Gitlis in Paris, from
whom she received advice on many occasions. She also had the chance
to learn from artists such as Eberhard Feltz, Alina Ibragimova or Giles
Apap among others. She is the co-funder of a piano trio, Trio Casablancas,
named after Catalan composer Benet Casablancas, who supports their
development. Her latest recording collaborations are Daniel Rowland’s CD
for Champs Hill UK and a new collaboration with Amen Discos in Spain in
which she explores music outside the frame of classical music.

In the last years she has been writing her first opera, a project that has lead
her to interdisciplinary collaborations as the ones she is developing with
painter Juaki Pesudo in Spain. She explores new musical scenes and stage
possibilities. Recent collaborations include: Recital Performático in the
Experimental Piano Festival of Konvet Zero in Girona, Els Malnascuts for
Sala Becket in Barcelona, Antimusikal for El Pumarejo in L’Hospitalet de
Llobregat, Kabaret La Pajarería also in L’Hospitalet de Llobregat, a new CD
